    The special tool is for alignment of the cups, but it's not black magic. If you can operate a straight edge/ t square, you can get them lined up perfectly.

    how many guys here leave on the "Made in Tawain" frame sticker? we are all pretty proud of that fact right?

    all right my fake branding is lame, i will take the stickers off, but there is nothing "cheap" about this bike. it looks like all the other high end branded carbon frames, cause they are all made in the same place.

    You were too cheap to buy a singlespeed frame, or a decent solution (like the philcentric) to make that frame SS friendly. It seems that you've missed something there.

    I completely forgot about the Philcentric, and maybe he did too..or maybe he wasn't even aware that it existed.

    Why the heck is anyone knocking his bike? He paid for it, and he has to ride it, and if that is how he wants his bike to look, who cares?

    All honesty, I'd still ride with him if he was on that bike..I don't care what people are riding on as long as we can hang on each other's back wheel during the ride. His bike could say "I <3 Justin Beiber for all I care. I may not agree with the way it looks, but I am not going to come and criticize him for it. I had no contribution during the build or design process, nor did I pay for anything. The guy was just stoked about building a new bike and though he would share it.

    This is not towards OneBadWagon directly in response, but generally on this thread.

    The only thing lame is people giving you crap for the stickers. Unless you were planning to scam someone, who cares?

    I do wish you can find a better/more elegant solution for the tensioner. It looks pretty cheesy, no offense.

    I think the fact that he's adorned his cheap chinese framed bike (which on its own is all good) with the name of an iconic American brand is distasteful, cheesy and lame. Most of the backlash is well deserved, and quite frankly, hilarious.

    i bought the chinese carbon frame as my first foray into 29er, after resisting for any years. The previous bike was a 26er Litespeed Niota. I really liked the big wheels but wasn't so keen on the lack of rear suspension and the low BB for the riding I do so I bought a Spearfish and built it up with all my trick parts, and I love it! I had a choice to ditch the carbon frame or build it up as something else so I decided to do a SS, the tensioner is not desirable, but there aren't many choices. The BB is threaded so I can't do the EBB. I may go for the YESS tensioner at the BB, but in the meantime I am digging what I got. Here's my Spearfish! (yup it's real, and made in Taiwain!)

    You judge them to be crybabies because of a post on the internet, we judged him because of his lame misrepresentation of his bike, and now you because you're an immature twat.

    I don't think anyone is crying or mad at this guy for doing what he's doing, we all are simple posting our opinions about the situation. He is free to do what he wants, but should also be aware that his actions are open to judgment by others, good or bad. Don't post pictures if you don't want people to talk about your bike, it's as simple as that...
